How to Draw a Winter Scene

Artist: Dawn / September 12, 2009

Step 1.

Start with some basic guidelines and shapes starting with the structure of the small house or cottage. Next draw the different shaped lines for the landscape and then draw the guidelines for the two trees.

Step 2.

You will now start sketching out the roof of the house and then add more detailing to the landscape lining. Next draw out the beginning lining for the fence and then start sketching out some of the winter tree limbs.

Step 3.

For step three you will draw out all the pine trees in the background as you see here and then draw the windows and door on the small house. Also sketch in some snow that is piled on top of the roof and then sketch out more of the two winter trees.

Step 4.

You will finish the shape and style of the white picked fence and then draw some details in the snow like deer hooves prints and piles of clumped up snow. Sketch out the tree stumps and then detail the icy pond.

Step 5.

You will sketch in some prints in front of the snowy walkway in front of the house door and then sketch out the patches of broken snow ice on the pond. Erase the guidelines and shapes that you can see to clean up your winter scene.

Step 6.

Here is what your winter landscape should come out looking like when you are done. Color it in and you have just learned "how to draw a winter scene step by step".

Description: Well we are already in the middle of September and that means there is only three more months to go before we come into the winter season. I wanted to sketch out and draw another scenery layout because I think that at some point in our artistic endeavors, we will all one day need or want to draw a scenery of some sorts. For my second and last tutorial for the day I will be showing you "how to draw a winter scene step by stepโ€. Winter is by far one of my favorite seasons because with this season comes cold weather, and snow. For those of you out there that live in more tropical or southern areas, you may not see snow, but you will definitely feel a temperature change. The winter scene that I drew is very simple. Not only will you learn to draw a seasonal scenery, you will also learn how to draw winter trees, a winter cottage or house, and you will also learn how to draw snow. I love the way that this drawing came out because it is filled with cheer and coziness that everyone can enjoy. I know you guys will love this lesson on โ€œhow to draw a winter scene step by stepโ€ because with winter comes December, and with December comes Christmas or Hanukkah or what ever holiday you may celebrate during the winter months.
